Putin said goodbye to Żyrinowski. The honor guard had to go

Armed with bayonets on rifles, the honor guard, which can be seen in other photos of Zhirinowski’s farewell ceremony, is absent from the coffin of a leading Russian nationalist when Vladimir Putin approaches her.

We recommend:

A huge feat of Russian propaganda. Instead of the “crimes of Ukraine” brave soldiers

Moscow’s retaliation. Polish diplomats expelled from Russia

Videos posted on social media clearly show a worried Putin throwing uncertain glances around.

The honor guard can be seen in the photos, for example, of the former president and prime minister of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev and other Russian politicians.

Who was Vladimir Zhirinovsky?

Żyrinowski was known for his provocative, anti-Western and nationalist opinions and speeches that made him popular in Russia for over three decades, Reuters points out.

Repeatedly, he has threatened to use nuclear weapons against various countries, take away the United States of Alaska, and extend Russia’s borders to the point where Russian soldiers could “wash their shoes in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.” He demanded the reconstruction of the Russian Empire. He proposed that President Vladimir Putin be awarded the title of “supreme ruler”. On the other hand, he proposed to Poland, Hungary and Romania that they should join the partition of Ukraine.

Żyrinowski often expressed opinions that, for various reasons, the Kremlin did not want or could not present in order to test the public’s reaction.

He ran in the presidential elections six times. Only he did not participate in the 2004 election campaign; the best result was in 2008, when he was placed third, winning over 9 percent. votes. He once announced that he would only leave the public scene after the elections in 2036, when he would turn 90.

Zhirinovsky’s party has been described as “systemic opposition” to the leader of Putin. This apparently provides for political rivalry, but in practice, the LDPR supports Putin when it is of greater importance, for example in the case of the annexation of Crimea in 2014 or the current invasion of Ukraine.
